Students hold nationwide debate on ECFA

The debate over a controversial trade pact Taipei intends to sign with China entered the classroom yesterday, as students from nine universities met to debate whether the government should move to sign the agreement.

The event, held at National Taiwan University (NTU) by the pro-independence Northern Taiwan Society, saw students raise concerns that an economic cooperation framework agreement (ECFA) with China could have a negative impact on their future career prospects and more fragile Taiwanese industries.


Why the KMT denies Taiwan people's power

The rightist ruling Chinese Nationalist Party displayed its undemocratic and intolerant mentality in the first shots of the campaign for the November election for five municipality mayoral posts has already been given by a flap over Taiwan's special mayoral posts in five special municipalities encompassing 13 million people.

In response to statements in an academic seminar on the character of the "Repubic of China" as an "exile regime" made Wednesday by opposition Democratic Progressive Party Chairwoman Tsai Ing-wen acknowledged the historical reality that the authoritarian KMT regime was externally imposed on Taiwan after its expulsion from the China mainland by the Chinese Communist Party's People's Liberation Army.


Protesters demand referendum

Braving the rain, a group of protesters yesterday marched from Taipei’s Longshan Temple (龍山寺) to the Executive Yuan calling on the government not to prevent the rightful expression of popular will on a proposed cross-strait trade pact through a referendum.

The Executive Yuan’s Referendum Review Committee is slated to convene a meeting on June 3 to decide whether a referendum question proposed by the Taiwan Solidarity Union (TSU) conforms to the requirements of a referendum proposal.


New cooperation with China touted by White House

US President Barack Obama’s administration has released a new national security strategy calling for “continued reduction in tension” across the Taiwan Strait.

The document emphasizes diplomacy over military action throughout the world and strongly promotes cooperation with China.


No benevolent Chinese dictatorship

In 2008, President and Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) Chairman Ma Ying-jeou (馬英九) expressed the hope that the KMT’s Youth Corps could “produce a [Chinese President] Hu Jintao” (胡錦濤). A classic remark, indeed, in view of the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) bloody history and the fact that it still has more than 1,000 missiles targeting Taiwan. Ma’s hopes that the KMT can produce a communist-style leader reveals a complete ignorance of what “evil” means.

He is not alone. Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) Chairperson Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) recently praised Hu as being “rational” and “kind.” It is worrying that Taiwan’s two main political leaders hold such romantic views of Chinese communist rule.


Taiwan's judiciary sees no reform from Ma

President Ma Ying-jeou declared that "change had arrived" during a news conference held May 19 to mark the second anniversary of the inaugural of his Chinese Nationalist Party government.

However, change, at least for the better, has been noteworthy only for its absence in Taiwan's judiciary, the last line of defense for justice in our society, despite the high-profile prosecution of former president Chen Shui-bian on corruption charges.

Taipei Mayor Ko Wen-je (柯文哲) received a death threat in a telephone call on Friday last week, Taipei City government spokesman Sidney Lin (林鶴明) said yesterday.

Media reports emerged on Wednesday night quoting Ko’s chief of staff Tsai Pi-ju (蔡壁如) as saying that a caller had criticized remarks made by Ko and warned him to “be careful,” because otherwise he would be “executed.”
